"Estate-grown, matured in French oak for 17 months. Excellent colour; cigar box/cedary oak is the first out of the blocks on a medium-bodied palate; the fruit is relatively delicate, but its red berries are inviting, as are the freshness and length of the palate." Halliday Wine Companion

Item Code: ITM14517
This medium-bodied blend displays aromas of violet, ripe red cherry and raspberry with subtle hints of savoury oak. The palate is elegant with red fruit characters balanced by fine tannins and soft oak nuances.
Item Code: ITM6466
"Rustic appeal here. It's almost as though it's got the scruffed hair but clean pressed shirt look going on. Boysenberry and plum line up side by side. A kick of earth is met by smokey feels with a soft touch of tannin helping it along the way. Baking spices chime it at the death too lingering long - nice touch that. It's a damn easy slurp, that's for sure. The type of wine you'd take to a gathering of friends and be proud to share - and you'll win a few more friends for your trouble. Great stuff!" QWine Reviews

"A wash of frisky, cranberrylike fruit flavours, a touch of amaro, a dash of pepper in the lively finish. Sweet then gently pleasing bitter. Such fun stuff. Drink with gusto." Mike Bennie
Item Code: ITM15293
"Pale salmon colour. Soft scents of strawberry, peaches, light spice. The palate is very delicate, pure-feeling, strawberry kissed, zesty with green apple acidity, finishing with light nutty savouriness and a lick of talc-like mineral charm. Delicate, complex, fine rose here. Very good feel. Very good wine." Mike Bennie
Item Code: ITM21109
Bright red fruits, with lifted cherry and raspberry. There's a spicy note here too, underpinned by a leafy/earthy shade. The palate is perfectly pitched, finding balance between acid and fruit, leading to a savoury finish. Highly Commended.
Item Code: ITM21762
Crafted by Colin Glaetzer exclusively for The Wine Society, this Shiraz is deep rich in colour with sweet ripe fruit and hints of oak on the nose. The palate has all the depth and structure of a premium Barossa Shiraz with good concentration of flavour and overall balance. An outstanding wine that is excellent value.
Item Code: ITM18631
"Deep red/purple, bright colour. The bouquet is perfumed and very charming; flowers and red fruits, a lick of mixed spice. It's ripe and clean, the palate full-bodied but smooth textured and refined, elegant and harmonious. It's far from a blockbuster. A very tidy wine, elegant and balanced." Houn Hooke
Item Code: ITM17696
"It has excellent hue, depth and clarity, one of those wines giving you a 'come-on' signal before you've had a chance to even smell it. It combines insouciant elegance with intensity, its balance already set in stone. You can tuck this under your arm and walk into any Italian BYO restaurant and walk out very happy. Bravo." Halliday Wine Companion

Item Code: ITM21574
"A good sangiovese that has repaid the complex vinification, first up with a fragrant rose petal/cherry blossom bouquet, the palate in a state of flux as savoury notes come and go, sour and fresh cherries playing hide and seek." Halliday Wine Companion

Item Code: ITM22356
"Oozing all the charm of Clare Valley starting with its dark purple hue, its fragrance of Chinese five spice, graphite and menthol with tangy black plums, currants and tart tamarind-acidity. The well-composed palate incorporates finely-chiselled savoury tannins and plenty of joy in between." Halliday Wine Companion
Item Code: ITM20301
"Absolutely classic Paringa, one of the best - if not the best - of the early starters, with full-on cool climate shiraz thrust. Likewise, classic blackberry, blood plum and licorice flavours are supported by fine tannins and subtle oak." Hallidau Wine Companion
Item Code: ITM20300
"I’ve liked a great many of the previous releases of this wine but this is my favourite of the lot. It’s a ripper. Balanced, well fruited, spice-laden, perfumed, floral and then sweetly exotic. It smells and tastes beautiful, and is so finely etched with tannin; it has everything exactly where you’d like it to be. I’d send a case of this straight into the pool room but I’d like my stash kept a lot closer to me than that and, besides, I don’t have a pool room anyway. Buy." Campbell Mattinson
Item Code: ITM21601
"A thoroughly attractive cabernet from start to finish, sustained throughout by perfectly ripened cassis fruit, the bouquet aromatic, the palate medium-bodied, the finish balanced. This is an emphatic drink now style, although its balance will secure its long term future." Halliday Wine Companion
Item Code: ITM15287
"Hand-picked Matura 6 and 7 clones, matured for 15 months in French barriques (10% new). Excellent colour; this is a pretty smart sangio, the red cherry fruits within a filigree of tannins, part satin, part spicy. The oak maturation has worked well, shaping texture more than flavour." Halliday Wine Companion
Item Code: ITM18614
"Hand-picked, co-fermented with 2% viognier, no whole bunches this vintage, matured in French puncheons (25% new) for 15 months. An interesting follow-on to the '15, the latter giving rise to many very good wines. The '16 takes its time in asserting its character and quality, which it does so handsomely on the back-palate and finish. Here spicy, savoury notes are allied with terrific tannins, fine, yet persistent." Halliday Wine Companion
Item Code: ITM18615
Lifted aromas of dark fruits and sweet spice with hints of white pepper and toasty oak. The palate is well-structured with ample plush bramble fruit intertwined subtle white pepper and oak, balanced by chewy tannins. A wine of depth, texture and length.
Item Code: ITM21163
"Takes a little time to wind up and get into gear, but having done so offers a very complex bouquet of plums and baker's spices, the palate gaining length and purpose each time I came back to it, although the flavour spectrum didn't crumble." Halliday Wine Companion
